When you think about it, the wealthy should pay more.
Besides the point. how about government...yes government stop wasting money...i'm sure rich people would be more than happy to give more in a good economy and if it weren't going into the hands of a president hell bent on experimenting with socialist theory
Come one... the rich have benefited from a manipulated market.
And it's not as if the rich need the money. It would be better to force them to disgorge their provits and use those to guarantee every American an income of, say, $70,000 or so, that they could spend on housing, appliances... whatever. That would do far more to stimulate the economy than giving the money to the banksters as has been done so far.
Investors would benefit from the dramatic ramp-up in economic activity.
